At a media briefing convened in Colombo on Monday, the UPFA remarked on allegations of the breach of election laws.

UPFA General Seretary, Minister Susil Premajayantha expressed following views:

“I saw in a newspaper that some political parties in the opposition had commented on psychological attacks. I do not know what the psychological attack is. We witnessed a psychological attack in the 1989 presidential election. The election was not held in 42 polling stations in the Moneragala District. Why was it not held? Because of the terror campaigns of the then government and the JVP. That was a psychological attack. Twenty four years have now lapsed. Such a society has now been transformed. We have a suspicion now as to whether they are preparing for psychological attacks at the upcoming main elections as they did in the past.”

Questions were raised regarding the use of state assets in the Uva Province.

The Minister replied thus: “No. What state assets have been used?” Who has been given vehicles? We pump petrol at our own cost. Show us if you can. We pay for the petrol ourselves.”
